Massey Ferguson Products Win Three 2023 AE50 Awards


MF 500R Series, MF 3 Series and MF 9S Series demonstrate consistent, farmer-focused innovation.

DULUTH, GA | DECEMBER 6, 2023 | AGCO Corporation (NYSE: AGCO), a global leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of agricultural machinery and precision ag technology, announced recently that three of its Massey Ferguson® products were recognized with prestigious 2024 AE50 awards from the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE). The AE50s recognize the industry’s top new products and services for remarkable innovation, significant engineering advancement and impact on their markets. Massey Ferguson’s 2024 awards confirm consistent excellence across product lines and cement the company as a leading innovator of farmer-focused solutions. Award winners included the Massey Ferguson 500R Series Sprayer, the Massey Ferguson 3 Series specialty tractor and the Massey Ferguson 9S Series tractor.

The Massey Ferguson 500R Series sprayers are a straightforward, dependable and economical option that help growers take control of their chemical application, improve yields and reduce costs. The MF 500R Series sprayers come standard with LiquidLogic®, which ensures constant circulation through the entire system and offers boom cleanout, product recovery and no spray priming capabilities. This helps reduce costs and waste. Smart all-wheel drive (AWD) with the transmission management system allows the machine to operate at a lower engine rpm to save fuel while maintaining pump pressure and spray pattern, ground speed, and hydraulic flow. The MF 500R rounds out a complete product lineup for Massey Ferguson from ground prep to harvesting.

Massey Ferguson 3 Series specialty tractors consist of seven models across three versions. Each focuses on meeting the specific and rugged requirements of vineyards and fruit orchards at an affordable price. The MF 3 Series features Stage V-compliant engines, transmissions with up to 30 speeds, a new operator interface and the brand’s global ”saber” styling scheme. The MF 3 Series offers a variety of power settings and modern specifications, including the 3VI.95 at widths down to 39.4 inches (1 meter) and the 3GE.95 and 3GE.105 with minimal steering wheel heights of 30.7 inches. The Massey Ferguson 3 Series Specialty tractors debuted at select farm shows across North America in 2023 and will be available in 2024 after World Ag Expo.

The Massey Ferguson 9S Series tractor expands the brand’s award-winning MF S Series into the 285-425 hp segment. The MF 9S Series provides a superior planting, baling and tillage solution with intuitive operation, ergonomics and increased dependability. The MF 9S Series’ 90-gallon-per-minute ECO pump delivers additional hydraulic flow to maximize Precision Planting components at a remarkable 1650 engine rpm, reducing fuel usage and cabin noise levels. The innovative Protect-U™ cab design produces a 69 dB cabin environment for comfortable and straightforward operation. The MF 9S Series’ improved turning axle achieves a 10% improvement in turning radius for more efficient turning on headlands, which saves operator time and reduces soil impact. The Massey Ferguson 9S tractor debuted at Agritechnica 2023 and will be available in North America in 2024.
